Social Media in the Public Sector

Here’s a podcast I put together from a conference I chaired today called ‘Social Media in the Public Sector‘. The students on the MA Social Media degree I lead had been doing podcasts last week (ably taught by Caroline Beavon) so I thought I best join in the fun.

The conference was very much of a traditional format, it’s almost as if the unconference approach taken by the localgovcamp movement is happening in a parallel universe. The speakers were good and on the 17 minute recording below I speak to (in order):

  • Jane Postlethwaite, Social Media Officer, Brighton and Hove City CouncilAlex – NHS London
  • Paul Melhuish, Digital News Editor, Department for Business, Innovation & Skills
  • Alex Talbott, Communications Officer, NHS London
  • Amanda Coleman, Head of Corporate Communications, Greater Manchester Police
  • Professor Vlatka Hlupic, Professor of Business and Management, Westminster Business School
  • I then speak to a few audience members, two from the UK Border Agency and two from local councils in the south of England.

Hope you find it useful. I always find it interesting to listen to how people are using social media within the workplace.
